let t= number of hours and n= number of workers

a and b are directly proportional: a = kb a and b are inversely proportional: a = k/b

so would it be t=k/n?

or t=n/k?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
You need t (hours) in terms of n (workers), so the equation is: t = k/n, where k is the constant of porportionality

Now let's look at it and reason it out. Think of k as a constant number that does not change. Since n is in the denominator, as n bcomes larger, the fraction on the right becomes smaller. Right?
